Overview

Star Wars Episode I: Jedi Power Battles was released on the Playstation on March 31, 2000 and later on the Dreamcast. It takes place within the events of Episode I: The Phantom Menace. The game is an action beat-em up with platforming elements and the games levels are set on the worlds of Naboo, Tatooine, Coruscant, and a Trade Federation Battleship. There are a number of playable characters including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Mace Windu, Adi Gallia, and Plo Koon.

Made by LucasArts, Jedi Power Battles was released shortly after the direct movie tie-in; "Stars Wars Episode One; The Phantom Menace". Unlike this previous game, the focus is almost entirely on action, and the game's 10 levels take the form of memorable battles that are loosely based on locations and events from the film. The game also has a basic levelling system, based on how many points you're able to amass playing each level. You're able to upgrade both your health, and the amount of force power energy you have.

Characters

The game lets the player take control of five Jedi from the era of episodes 1-3, each with their own special Force abilities. These Jedi, and their starting special abilities are as follows:

  • Qui-Gon Jinn - Shockwave: Qui-Gon releases the power of the Force in a 360-degree attack.
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi - Saber Dash: Obi-Wan races forward, cutting down enemies in his path.
  • Mace Windu - Saber Shield: Mace causes his lightsaber to spin around him for quick protection.
  • Adi Gallia - Mesmerize: Adi lulls nearby enemies into a trance.
  • Plo Koon - Saber Cyclone: Plo whirls around in a 360-degree spin with his lightsaber.

You can also unlock more characters to play as:

  • Darth Maul - Complete the game as Qui-Gon Jinn.
  • Captain Panaka - Complete the game as Obi Wan Kenobi on the Dreamcast, or Plo Koon on the Playstation.
  • Battle Droid - Complete the first level as all five starting characters. (Dreamcast only)
  • Queen Amidala - Complete the game as Adi Gallia on the Dreamcast, or Obi-Wan on the Playstation.
  • Ki-Adi-Mundi - Complete all seven training levels, then save the game. (Dreamcast only)

Most of the characters have a lightsaber as their primary weapon (the exceptions being Amidala and Panaka). As the game is more action based than the official movie game, the combat system is made paramount. The player can lock onto an enemy, and then use combo attacks to defeat them. Lasers can also be deflected using the lightsaber by timing the block button just as the blast is about to hit you.

The Dreamcast version featured improved graphics, a new front-end menu, a competitive multiplayer duelling mode that allowed you to play as nearly every character in the game (including enemies), an additional training mode, as well as alterations in gameplay to moderate the difficulty level.
